We met a neighbor today while walking Shona (Shona is a Scottie, naturally). He always refers to my 124 as "the itibity Fiat" and he mentioned that he will be getting his Porsche Panamera out of storage and putting it in his newly built garage. (He seems to believe the Panamera is built on a 911 chassis but I thought it impolite to tell him that was total BS.) Jokingly I said we would have to have a race and he told me the top speed of the Porsche. I got the impression he was a slightly shocked when I told him the 124 could "only" do about 134mph with its tiny engine :)

The panamera is very fast but it's looks are hidious.

I prefer my Abarth 124 to the panamera.

It is like having a gorgeous curvy lady against a flat chested female athlete on steroids 😜

Just thinking to myself how many spiders one could buy vs the Panamera.
I was thinking the same thing while I was talking to him and the 124 is still light-years ahead for entertainment value. (I only paid $17,500 for mine with 500 miles on the clock.)

I told him he would easily beat me on a straight road but he'd have no chance if there were any bends :)

Given a choice between a Panamera and my long gone Vanagon, I'd go with the Vanagon (which was a lot closer to a 911 than the Panamera.)

Well that's just silly. Admittedly they are similar in many respects but Ford doesn't even make a convertible F150.

:)
Oh I see sorry my bad. I was thinking specifically of the F-150 Eco boost Turbo.
